The Message -- for Catholics of Southwestern Indiana Entertainment May 17, 1991 On the Record By CHARLIE MARTIN NC News Service Columnist Our homes greatly influence who we become Rhythm of My Heart Across the river the river runs/Down in the gutter/Life  slipping away/Love may still exist in another place/Running on the clover of a hilly plain/Flames are getting higher in every way/Burning down the bridges of my memory/Love may still be alive/Somewhere, some way/In a down and lonely dear/A hundred steel towns away REFRAIN: The rhythm of my heart/Is beating like a drum/With the words "I love you"/Rolling offmy tongue/Never will I roam/For I know my precious home/Where the ocean meets the sky/I'll be sailing/Photographs, kerosene/Light up the darkness, light it up,/Light it up, light it up/I can still feel the touch/Of your thin blue jeans/Running down the alley/I've got my eyes all over you baby. (Repeat refrain) I got lightning in my veins/Shooting out like a baBin a.slot, machine/Love may still exist in another ile/I'm just yanking bck the cam- era/No expression on my face (Repeat refrain three times) new sense of appreciation. How can you show your gratitude? Written by Marc Jordan, John Capek First, tell your parents and all those you live Sung by Rod Stewart with that you appreciate their efforts to make a Copyngh.t (c) Warner Brothers Records for home. Too often Others' small everyday acts of the Umted States, and Wea International kindness are overlooked, and at times taken for Bagpipes in a rock song? Maybe my ears are fooling me, but that is what I hear in Rod Stewart's latest hit, "Rhythm of My Heart." Stewart recently returned to Scotland to open his new world tour. The song seems to be a tribute to his Scottish roots. In the song, an individual remembers what it means to have a home he loves. Apparently, he has been depressed, feeling like his "life is slip- ping away." He wants to find a way to "exist in another place" where "love may still be alive." Yet. as he listens to the very rhythm of his heart it reminds him of his "precious home," a place where "the ocean meets the sky," a place to "be sailing," Think for a minute about your own home. Few aspects of life so greatly influence who we be- come as the place we grew upend the pebple there. Even when our memories are painful, the legacy of these events influences our current rela- tionships, no matter where we live. Reflecting upon our first home can lead to a III I I I III granted. Next, adopt the attitude of forgiveness. There are no perfect homes, just as there are no perfect parents, sons, daughters, brothers or sisters, Even when we fail, most of us are trying to do our best. Indeed, we need to realize how events that were hurtful have affected us, but we also need to let go of anger and resentment. Whether they are older or younger than you, see those in y6ur home as fellow learners in the adventure of life. Finally, remember your physi- cal surroundings. Think about the trees, yards, countryside surrounding your home. All are gifts from the Creator God. Show your respect and gratitude by doubling your commitment to take care of the Earth. No matter where we live or where we grew up, our Earth is the only planet-home we have! (Your comments are welcome always. Please address them to: Chadie Martin, RR 3, Box 182, Rockport, Ind, 47635.) I I I NBC to air document on church social teaching WASHINGTON (CNS) -- NBC-TV is slated to air a doc- umentary on church social teaching which highlights ef- forts for justice in the work- place. WFIE TV Program Director Shirley Kirk said no decision had yet been made on when -- or whether -- Channel 14 in Evansville would air the program, entitled, "Mar- ketplace Prophets: Voices for Justice in the 20th Century." The religious special is part of NBC's ecumenical series, "Horizons of the Spirit," and was produced by the Inter- faith Broadcasting Commis- sion. It reviews the century of so- cial teaching since Pope Leo XIII wrote the landmark so- cial encyclical "Rerum No- varum" (on capital and labor), in 1891. The program also high- lights church organizations that work to break the cycle of injustice in the United States and abroad, according to the U.S. Catholic Confer- ence. Among the organizations featured are Catholic Chari- ties, a major provider of human services nationwide, and the Campaign for Human Development, the U.S. bish- ops' anti-poverty program which funds self-help pro- jects around the country. Persons highlighted in- clude Ernie Cortez, a commu- nity organizer from San Anto- nio; Father Thomas Harvey, executive director of Catholic Charities USA; Karen Nuss- baum, founder of 9-to-5, the National Working Women's Association, Cleveland; and John Carr, head of the USCC Department of Social Devel- opment and World Peace. Partial funding for the pro- dnction was provided by the Catholic Communication CTNA director of program development resigns WASHINGTON (CNS) -- Father Art Smith, vice presi- dent and director of program development for the Catholic Telecommunications Net- work of America, has re- signed to return to parish work. Father Smith, a priest of the Diocese of Buffalo, N.Y., founded Daybreak TV Pro- ductions in the diocese before he joined the network in Oc- tober 1987. He will be or- dained 20 years May 29. Father Smith's resignation, effective June 1, was an- nounced May 1. The an- nouncement said he will con- tinue with.CTNA as a consultant and that the search for a new program di- rector "is already under way." Bishop John R. McGann of Rockville Centre, N.Y., CTNA board chairman, praised Fa- ther Smith for increasing the number of live CTNA produc- tions "from 22 to 125 annual- ly." CTNA was founded by the U.S. bishops in 1981. 15% Senior Discount Every Tuesday!
